For easy frying dumplings, make them thin. The heat should be very low, if the heat is high-medium, the outside of the dumplings will be brown too quickly, and the flour will be raw (not fried) on the inside. the hot should not be very hot before. Do not overheat the oil, If the hot is too hot, the dumplings will be brown too quickly.

To the flour, you can add other ingredient, such as 1 tbsp. butter or margarine, however, this will change the texture of the dough to short crust dough, and the fried dumplings will taste somewhat like cookie.


1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

4 tbsp. vegetable oil

1/4 water (or less)

1/2 tsp. salt



Sift flour and salt into a medium-size bowl. Use a little water at a time to mix flour into dough, knead dough for 1 minute (dough should not be sticky; if sticky, sprinkle a little flour on the dough and knead again for a couple of seconds). This is optional but, for best-tasting fried dumplings, rest the dough for at least 10 minutes. Rest the dough by covering it from air for 10 minutes.


pot with oil

Put a skillet or Dutch pot with oil over low heat. Use the dough to make small balls. Press each ball gently with hands. Fry the dumplings in the hot oil; each side for about 1 minutes. Continue until done. Drain and serve hot.
